Just Burgers is Coming to Ditmars...When?
There's been a lot of buzz in the nabe about Just Burgers, which looks just about well done and probably in a couple of weeks, ready to open. Occupying the space at the base of The Acropolis building on the corner of 34th Street and Ditmars, the location couldn't be better for residents and visitors alike.
Although I'm not really sure when this place will debut its burger offering (and maybe unlike its name suggests, some other goodies too), I wanted to take your pulse on this matter and see if you know any details. Chime in with your knowledge...people want to know.
In the meantime, if you're looking for a solid burger experience in the nabe, here are a couple of great options you can hit:
Fatty's Cafe - I love their turkey burger with jalapeno mayo, peppers and onions. 25-01 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria NY 11105. 718.267.7017
Sparrow - Not only do they use grass fed beef, the thick-cut bacon and herbed fries, which you can add on are an extra bonus. 24-01 29th Street, Astoria NY 11102. 718.606.2260
BareBurger - You can't go wrong with any burger here, but my personal favorites include the Big Blue Bacon Mushroom Onion Burger and the Lamb BareBurger. 33-21 31st Avenue, Astoria NY 11106. 718.777.7011
5 Napkin Burger - Even though there's about 10 burger options to choose from, I highly recommend going with the classic, The Original 5 Napkin Burger with caramelized onions, gruyere cheese, and 5 Napkin's special rosemary aioli. 35-01 36th Street, Astoria NY 11106. 718.433.2727
